Get Your Bot On!

11/23/2012 6:30 PM - 11/25/2012 4:00 PM

If you tinker in electronics, mechanics, microcontrollers or software, then we have an awesome weekend for you! Get Your Bot On! Robotics Hackathon is a chance for newbies, hobbyists and pros alike to come together, build a robot and have some fun.

The hackathon will be held Friday November 23 to Sunday November 25th, 2012. On the Friday evening you’ll meet fellow robohackers, make teams, and come up with ideas for your robot. All day Saturday and on Sunday morning you’ll be building, testing and rethinking your ideas. By Sunday afternoon everyone will get to see your awesome creation, and prizes will be awarded based on design, innovation and technical wonder.

This is a BYOC event (bring your own computer). We will provide a basic kit of robot tech for each team, but you are welcome to bring your own parts, if you have them.


Get Your Bot On! is a 3-day hacking extravanganza! Other hackathons have you sitting solemnly behind your computer screen, plunking away at your code. Get Your Bot On! will have you rolling up your sleeves and getting sweaty trying to get your bot to Bust a Move!

We, the team behind the hackathon, love robots, are passionate about building things, and wanted to meet some people who feel the same. We are all volunteers and have been working hard hammering out the details of the weekend so you can have fun.
